Macs/Apples/Wired Mighty Mouse will not un-zoom
Wired "Mighty Mouse" will zoom screen when scroll button rolled forward with "Control" pressed. But will not un-zoom when scroll button rolled backwards with "Control" pressed. Less often I can't zoom using this procedure.
Also sometimes button won't scroll.
Problem started a year ago. "Genious" at Apple store said due to dirt from finger and I should clean mouse button by rubbing it with a clean cloth soaked with alcohol, let dry. This solved all these problems. Originally I had to do this every few weeks. I made a point of washing my hands before using it. Frequency of problem slowly increased to now every 2 or 3 days.
Specs: 4 year old wired Mighty mouse on 5 year old iMac desktop OSX v.10.6.8
Is cleaning method wrong/insufficient? Is there a better cure?
Do I need a new mouse?
If so, what mouse with same features would not have this (or other) problems?
Thanks for your help.
4 years old mouse with a problem started 1 year ago. 3 years is a good lifespan for a mouse. You just need a new one.
You can get a new Mighty Mouse or upgrade to Magic Mouse: http://store.apple.com/ca/product/MB829AM/A/apple-magic-mouse?afid=p219%7CGOCA&c
